On Reading a Tree [Claudia Castro Luna]
All Levels | Trees are an iconic symbol of the Northwest; some varieties may live well into the thousand-year range, yet they are static beings, their point of view rooted to a particular location. What do they see over their long lifespans? This is a class about seeing, about noticing the resonances between ourselves and the world around us. We will do this by anchoring our attention on our arboreal neighbors. We will investigate ourselves through the trees in our lives, read widely and write poetry and creative nonfiction.
